Forest Oaks Tennis Court
Construction Project

Forest Oaks Tennis Courts 1-4 are scheduled to be under construction from mid-February through mid-May 2024. The anticipated construction timeline will take around three (3) months to complete once it has started. An exact timeline has not been set by the construction firm performing the work. Once a schedule has been created, updates will be provided on this page throughout the project.

Scope of the Project

The project will include the following:

  • Demo and removal of all current asphalt and substructure foundation. All new foundation and leveling will create a stronger base for the new court surfaces and minimize any potential cracking. New concrete courts will be use a post-tension system underlay which will also keep the courts from cracking and creating gaps on the surface.

  • Replacement of six current 30' tennis court light poles with four 60' state of the art MUSCO light systems. This will increase the light quality on courts 1-4 from the current average light level of 12 to an average light level of 50 with minimal spillage of light to the surrounding residential homes.

  • Replacement of all tennis net systems.

  • Replacement of all current fencing and windscreen with new fencing and new windscreen. 

  • Four pickleball courts will be lined on either side of the net on Court 1 and 2. New portable pickleball systems will be purchased by Forest Oaks for use.

  • Additional practice walls will be installed once the project is completed on Courts 1 and 4. This may be done during summer 2024 or later depending on the length of the project.

Impact of Tennis Court Construction on Forest Oaks Members

  • Court Access

    • Courts 5 - 8 will remain open and available for tennis players, Rivera Tennis, and league play but access to courts will be significantly impacted throughout this construction project.

    • All tennis court scheduling will be handled by Forest Oaks Office Manager.

    • Open rec users will NOT be guaranteed any specific days and times for access during peak hours of operation (Mondays through Fridays from 5 - 9 p.m.) due to Rivera Tennis programming and trainings as well as Forest Oaks approved league play. Courts 5-8 will be scheduled on an hourly basis to ensure we are using the courts efficiently for the differing needs of our stakeholders.

    • All Forest Oaks approved leagues will be approved as best as possible BUT court access and number of courts available will be reduced for any requests. This will lead to fewer games being played at any given time. It is encouraged that Forest Oaks teams request away games during this project if they want to have shorter competition times. Multiple leagues being played at the same time will be discussed with team captains and handled on a case by case basis.

    • All leagues that are not Forest Oaks will be denied reservation requests during the construction project.

  • Parking

    • Parking will be reduced in the lower tennis court lot once the construction team installs temporary fencing and security fencing for equipment and supplies. The parking spots nearest courts 5 and 6 will remain available and all individuals parking in those spots will have to walk to the main facility entrance to enter.

    • Parking will be allowed in the upper parking lots nearest the clubhouse during the construction project without penalty as long as valid parking pass is displayed.

    • Those without parking tags can use Forest Oaks Park parking lot.

  • Court Gate Entrances

    • The two tennis court access gates will be unavailable for use once the construction team installs temporary fencing. All tennis players will have to enter the facility through the main facility gate nearest the fitness center.

  • Lighting and Court Nets

    • Prior to the start of construction, the current light poles on courts 1-4 will be removed. We anticipate removing them one week prior to the start of the demo.

    • One day prior to start we will remove:

      • All nets and posts

      • All fence shades and court bench/shades

      • All windscreen

      • All signage and displays along fence.

  • General Impact

    • Once demo begins, there will be considerable noise, dust, debris, and workers present.

    • Forest Oaks staff will continue to blow off courts 5-8 in the mornings around 7:30 a.m. and, when possible, in the afternoon around 2 p.m. Additional court cleanings will not be performed after 3 p.m. by WCID110 staff. Rivera Tennis or team captains can blow off courts as needed.

  • 12/13/23: The project was placed out for bid in December 2023 and one construction company submitted a bid for the project. That bid is under review by Langford Engineering, Inc. and the board will review the recommendation at the January 10, 2024 board meeting.

  • 1/10/24: The Board approved the bid for the project and Langford Engineering will prepare the bid documents needed for the construction company. This takes 10-14 days as the construction company completes paperwork, provides additional required information, and starts to order equipment and supplies.

  • 1/19/24: The WCID110 District Manager and Office Manager met with the Tennis Committee, Rivera Tennis, and several of the recognized Forest Oaks tennis team captains to discuss court usage and scheduling during the construction project. It was a productive meeting and we are currently working on creating a court usage schedule which will be made available on the Tennis Courts page under Parks and Recreation tab.

  • 1/31/24: We have received the final contract for execution and that will be reviewed by our engineers and lawyers before going to the board for final approval during the 2/14 board meeting. We should see significant movement once the final approval is authorized and the construction company can provide us with the project schedule. As a reminder, based on their schedule, we will remove lights for courts 1-4 for the week before they start and then remove nets/poles/benches/windscreen/etc. on the courts for the day prior to them starting.

2/23: First meeting is scheduled with construction team for Tuesday, 2/27 to go over project, timeline, and other information.
